Stress Relief

WHEN THE BODY IS STRESSED IT AUTOMATICALLY LOOKS FOR A SOOTHING TONIC.  STRESS RELIEF:

EATING BECAUSE OF STRESS IS A VERY COMMON TRIGGER

WHEN THE BODY IS STRESSED IT AUTOMATICALLY LOOKS FOR A SOOTHING TONIC.  FOOD IS READILY AVAILABLE AND IN AND OF ITSELF, FOOD IS SOOTHING..PHYSICALLY THE BODY DIRECTS ITS FUNCTIONS TO DIGEST THE FOOD AND DULLS THE EFFECTS OF STRESS….., IF ONE EATS CARBOHYDRATES IT IS CHEMICALLY CALMING TO THE BRAIN.  ON AN EMOTIONAL LEVEL FOOD OFTEN SYMBOLIZES COMFORT.  EATING WHILE STRESSED OFFERS TEMPORARY RELIEF.

WHEN DEALING WITH FOOD OR WEIGHT ISSUES, LEARNING DIFFERENT WAYS OF SOOTHING YOURSELF IS VITAL TO SUCCESS.

SOCIAL SUPPORT:

?ENGAGING SOCIALLY WITH PEOPLE WHO CAN OFFER COMFORT OR SUPPORT  WILL HELP TAKE AWAY THE NEED FOR FOOD.  TALKING TO PEOPLE FACE TO FACE IS BEST, BUT SPEAKING ON THE PHONE WITH SOMEONE YOU KNOW WELL WILL ALSO BE COMFORTING INSTEAD OF USING FOOD TO FILL A VOID FOR INTERACTION

?ATTENDING A LECTURE ABOUT A TOPIC THAT IS OF INTEREST WILL ALSO BE A STRESS REDUCTION TOOL

JOINGING A SUPPORT GROUP

BREATH WORK:

?REGULATE YOUR HEART AND RESPIRATION THROUGH MEDITATION ?YOGA OR YOGA BREATHING TECHNIQUES OR DIAPHRAMATIC BREATHING ARE IMMEDIATE STRESS BUSTERS

?TAKING 5 DEEP BREATHS IF YOU ARE IN A STRESSFUL SITUATION WILL

HELP ALLEVIATE STRESS

?FOCUSING ON YOUR HEART BEAT WILL TAKE YOUR ATTENTION TO YOUR BODY AND ASSIST IN REDUCING STRESS

VISUALIZATION:

?VISUALIZING A CALM SCENE LIKE THE EBB AND FLOW OF THE OCEAN OR A GENTLE BROOK  CAN TAKE YOUR MIND TO A NEW PLACE

MUSIC:

?LISTENING TO MUSIC THAT IS 70 BEATS A MINUTE…CLASSICAL MUSIC, i.e., MOZART OR BAROQUE MUSIC WILL HELP YOUR HEART RATE TO RESONATE WITH THE MUSIC AND IT HELPS TO DESTRESS

?MOVING TO MUSIC IN A RHYTHMIC FASHION WILL ALSO RELIEVE STRESS WHEREAS MOVING OR LISTENING TO JARRING MUSIC WILL NOT HELP WITH STRESS RELIEF

?USING MUSIC THAT YOU ARE FAMILIAR WITH AND HAVE POSITIVE ASSOCIATIONS WILL HELP.

?CREATING A LIST OF SONGS AND RECORDING THEM ON YOUR IPOD WILL HELP YOU TO ASSOCIATE RELAXATION WITH SPECIFIC MUSIC

THOUGHT STOPPING:

?TECHNIQUES TO MOVE REPETITIVE OR DISTURBING THOUGHTS FROM YOUR MIND ALSO HELP WITH STRESS RELIEF

?CREATING A LIST OF POSITIVE THOUGHTS WILL HELP SOOTHE JANGLED NERVES

?BECOMING YOUR INNER COACH TO MOTIVATE YOU TO CHANGE HELPS IN TIMES OF STRESS

?AFFIRMATIONS OR POSITIVE SELF STATEMENTS HELP TRAIN YOU TO THINK IN A POSITIVE WAY

HOLISTIC APPROACH:

FOCUS ON SELF AS A WHOLE RATHER THAN ON EATING AS THE ONLY OUTLET FOR STRESS…EATING AS A RESPONSE TO NON HUNGER CLUES IS A HABIT,,,HABITS CAN BE CHANGED IN A SYSTEMATIC WAY IN APPROXIMATELY 6 WEEKS,,,,PRACTICE A NEW, HEALTH PROMOTING HABIT FOR SIX WEEKS AND EMOTIONAL EATING CAN BE REMOVED FROM YOUR LIFE IN AS LITTLE AS SIX WEEKS

  5. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great blog and I look forward to seeing it expand over time.

  6. I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?

  8. I do enjoy the way you have presented this particular difficulty and it does offer me personally a lot of fodder for consideration. However, from everything that I have witnessed, I simply just trust as other responses stack on that people today remain on issue and not get started upon a soap box involving the news of the day. All the same, thank you for this superb piece and while I do not really go along with this in totality, I value your point of view.

  9. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your blog when you could be giving us something enlightening to read?
